When Your Half Marathon Becomes a 10K — And You're Totally Okay with It
I've been working towards a goal of a half marathon PR. My first try was scheduled for the First Watch Sarasota Half on October 20.
Due to weather and safety challenges, the race management cancelled the half. However, half runners were invited to run a 10K race for free instead. So, I did!
Read my review of First Watch Sarasota Half Marathon that became a 10K bridge run. While I didn't get a half mara PR, I did get an awesome challenge and race experience.
It was a solid training run that increases my chances for a PR in November. It's all good if you ask me!

I'm so happy that as a BibRave Pro I received an OM transition wrap to test and review. Orange Mud makes the transition wrap in 9 colors, plus a woodland camo print. I love blue, so I went with that. But, I can see getting different colors for each member of the family or matching it to a car interior.
The transition wrap is made of microfiber. I love how soft and absorbent it is. It's perfect for changing clothes in public or putting a barrier between you and your car upholstery after a workout.
I've used it after runs and races when I'm a sweaty mess. The thing is — it feels like it wicks the sweat away from me. I never feel like I'm sitting in sweat like I do with a regular towel. It makes the ride home from a race more comfortable.
To use the wrap as a seat cover, zip the zipper. This creates a hood you slip over the headrest on your car seat. The wrap stays in place while you drive.
I'm finding I use this wrap around the house, too. Sometimes, I want to relax for a minute, or send a quick email after a run. I grab my Orange Mud wrap and use it on my porch or desk chair. I call this solving Runner Problem #43.

Compact, Portable, Plush and Useful
I've had my OM transition towel for about a month. I've washed it after every use (4-5 times) and it holds its color. This is great gear for runners, walkers, swimmers, and beachgoers.
Below are more photos to give you a better view of how the wrap works.
Use It After Yoga, CrossFit, Running, Swimming, Biking or a Day at the Beach
Put the towel on your car seat to prevent sweaty smells on your car upholstery. Wrap it around your chest or waist to change from sweaty clothes to dry ones. Take it to the beach and use it after a swim or for quick changes. Fold it into a rectangle and use it as a pillow! This thing is super soft! (Photo credit: Orange Mud)

We had time to pickup our packets, return to the car, and then make our way to the starting line. The race began and ended in the parking lot. There was a separate kids dash for the little ones at 8 am.
Since we'd never been to Legoland, our plan was to walk and take in the sights. The course took everyone through most of the park. I think there were more walkers than runners. Awards took place at 8:30 so there was lots of time to complete the 5K.

Legoland Orlando Brick Dash 5K
This was a fun race through a theme park. I had no idea Legoland was so large. The lego sculptures and decor are amazing. We ran through each area, plus the waterpark. I'm very happy we ran this race.
There were a couple of water stops, and lots of Halloween Lego characters ready and willing to pose for photos. The park staff cheered on the runners and kept us on course.
Part of the charm of this event was its small size. There's room to grow for sure, but I hope it doesn't get too big. The race is capped so everyone fits on the walkways in the park.
I also love that proceeds from the race went to Merlin's Magic Wand charity.
